...just bought x2 books via my Diving (work suspension) Holiday along the lower southern NSW coastKILLERS in EDEN
by Danielle Clode: All about the world famous Orca-Human partnership in regards to Whaling around the small but beautiful Whaling town of Eden. She put on a nice seminar (as did Natalie Schmitt in regards to Whale DNA patterns. Natalies was a real good looker - so I couldn't resist asking more questions
One can't help but get caught up in the 'Killers' story while in Eden.
Just a note to everyone: After a few weeks getting to know people in Eden - my sixth sense tells me that Eden will soon become a MAJOR port as it has the 3rd DEEPEST harbour in the world and it aims to cater to the BIG Cruise Liners, etc. The town has come to this decision I think because the Govt and it's (American) Economic ways have seen its fishing and logging industries practically close up and the population drop by 25% for lack of work.
I think its a great idea personally and am looking to take full advantage of it when I move to the coast.
The other book isThe Biggest Estate on Earth
(How Aborigines 'made' Australia) by Bill Gammage
Basically a new tact on the majority of Australian History upon Aboriginal History. Goes into how the Abos turned pre-colonial Australia into a well managed 'parkland' and 'garden' and prevented it frokm becoming overgrown and too wild like South America and Africa.
Both should be a good read although I know the 'Killers' story really well. I just hope, if I'm ever underwater around Eden and an Orca decides to pay me a visit - it doesn't still hold a grudge with a good memory passed on, otherwise I think I will just **** my wettie
